This is my first Breast cancer forum. I found a large lump (feels like almost 3cm) in my right breast about a month ago.
Went for a diagnostic mammo on the 25th of july. Within a week , i got a call at 8pm ( what doctor calls at that hour??) from the doctor saying, the mammo was suspicious (love that word...sigh), they saw "flecks in it" and he wanted to make sure I had the other apps set up.
I told him i did... August 21st for a ultrasound and meeting with the breast surgeon. ( i'm surious.. is there a penis surgeon?)
The next day , the mammogram tech called to set up an appointement asap. She said ....
" I call back healthy women all the time! no need to worry.. it's probably just a technical issue"
I told her I had already spoken to the doctor and knew why they wanted another mammo. Her voice changed immedietly from the " cold yet warm" standard words... to the straight forward no bull attitude.
She gave me an appt for Friday August 17th andwhen i told her my appt with the surgeon was the following tuesday and wondered if she would have the results by then.. she said ..
" remind me at the time to get you a "verbal reading"" .
From the multitude of reading i have done in the last few weeks.. i have not read about a "verbal reading"
This waiting.. as you all must know, is torture..
I am very glad to find a community to share my thoughts and to learn from reading others.
